Award highlights the power of effective risk assessments and the importance of network security
FireMon, the leading network security policy management company that brings visibility, control, agility, and automation to enterprise cloud and hybrid network infrastructure, today announced that FireMon Risk Analyzer is recognized as the top solution in the Trust Awards category at the 2021 SC Awards. The announcement was made online Monday, May 3, 2021, as part of SC Media’s 2021 SC Awards coverage.
FireMon Risk Analyzer provides security teams with crucial visibility to see when vulnerable assets are accessible on their network and which access paths are creating exposure. With this information, security teams can prioritize remediations based on true levels of risk, and deploy patches or compensating controls to provide the greatest protection. Risk Analyzer integrates with all major vulnerability scanners.
"FireMon Risk Analyzer fills a critical gap for enterprise security teams – understanding how network behavior and existing security controls affect the reachability of identified vulnerabilities defines the real exposure of an asset from a particular threat," said Tim Woods, VP of Technology Alliances at FireMon. "Otherwise, it’s very difficult to prioritize remediations. This award recognizes just how well Risk Analyzer helps our customers improved their overall risk posture.
Now in its 25th year, 2021’s SC Awards were the most competitive yet, with a record 579 entries. Winners of the Trust Award were chosen by a distinguished group of leading IT security professionals from SC Media's readership. Entrants were narrowed down to a select group of finalists before undergoing a rigorous final judging process to determine the winner of each category.
"Distinct challenges that emerged during the last year resulted in a diverse range of demands from the customer community. A pandemic drove employees home en masse; supply chain attacks left government agencies and businesses reeling; cybercriminals and enemy nation states banked on security gaps during unprecedented times, targeting home networks, health care organizations, and retailers, among many other organizations," said Jill Aitoro, editor in chief of SC Media. "Winners of our Trust Awards demonstrated remarkable resiliency, adapting to meet evolving requirements of customers."
The SC Awards are recognized throughout the security industry as the gold standard of excellence in cybersecurity. With the awards, SC Media recognizes the achievements of security professionals in the field, the innovations happening in the vendor and service provider communities, and the vigilant work of government, commercial and nonprofit entities. Vendors and service providers who offer a product and/or service for the commercial, government, educational, nonprofit, or other industries are eligible for the Trust Award category.

"This industry recognition is testament to FireMon Risk Analyzer’s ability to help security engineers manage risk across cloud, datacenter, and hybrid networks behind a single pane of glass. The real-time visibility it delivers helps to highlight what assets are currently at risk and provides a prioritized list of remediation actions based on what reduces the greatest amount of risk with the least amount of effort," said Warren.
